Join our archaeology webinars for Heritage Open Days and Birmingham Heritage Week 2020

Before we build bridges, tunnels, tracks and stations, the largest archaeology programme ever undertaken in the UK is taking place along the line of route. Our archaeology programme is continuing to unearth discoveries across our sites.

To share information about these works and some of the exciting finds uncovered we are running a series of online archaeology events to support Heritage Open Days and Birmingham Heritage Week 2020.
